Police looking for attempted abduction suspects.

Police are looking for two suspects after a girl said two unknown men tried to lure her into a truck Tuesday afternoon. 

The 12-year-old girl said she was taking her dog for a walk, near her grandmother's house, on Bosserman St. near Oberreich St. when a truck pulled up with two men inside.

She told police the passenger said he knew the girl's mother and the girl should get in the truck with the men.  The girl refused, but the men reportedly continued to ask that she get in the truck.  The girl walked back to her grandmother's house and saw the truck leave.

The truck is described as an older-model red pick-up truck with a black bed cap.  The passenger is described as an older white male with gray and brown curly hair and a beard.  No description was given for the driver.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the LaPorte Police at 219-362-9446.
